After moving here with my Family from Montreal in 1989, I knew Real Estate was going to be my career and never looked back. I believe there has to be passion, perseverance, and commitment for it to be a long-standing career. For 31 years, I have made those a priority.
Now, It is time for a new chapter and a new role with the Dinnell Real Estate Group. My new official title is CRO — “Chief Retirement Officer.”
Please feel free to still reach out and I am happy to take your calls, meet up and introduce you to the rest of the team.
What others are saying
Please be advised that I am a real estate investor, and have been for almost twenty years. In 2003, I was referred to Marlee Tecks of Remax Westcoast by two good friends. I have worked with her since that time and have done several deals with her.
I have found Marlee to be quite knowledgeable about the real estate market in British Columbia, particularly that in Greater Vancouver. She has given me a lot of great advice on buying and selling property over the years, and has always made time to talk with me on the phone and to meet with me whenever I am in town. In addition, she is quite friendly and very easy to work with.
I have absolutely no hesitation is giving Marlee my highest recommendation. I could not ever imagine finding anyone better.

We came to meet Marlee over two years ago while taking a look at the apartment market in Richmond with a view of downsizing at some future time when our home’s many staircases became too much for us. This theoretical exercise resulted in our falling in love with the very first property she showed us, a small apartment in an older Brighouse multi-storey block, and our offer was accepted within days.
It was natural therefore that when we later decided to sell our old home, a townhouse in Hamilton (Richmond), we sought out Marlee. Selling this property in a market that was justing starting to fall, and a bit remote from central Richmond, gave her a chance to show her mettle.
This she did from the start by giving us a truthful picture of the market we were entering and then taking us through the paperwork now required by new legislation; after her first walk through she gave us useful advice on the best places to spend money in order to make the 25 year old property more attractive.
She produced a very attractive coloured brochure for prospective buyers and did not stint on the Open Houses she held. Our first offer turned out to be our only serious one and four months, we were able to hand over the door keys to the new owners.
We, therefore have no reservations in recommending her and are sure you will not be disappointed with the service she provides.

When we found our dream home just before Christmas, we thought we’d be in for a week of nail biting through the holidays to put in a bid. Much to our surprise, Marlee volunteered to work on Christmas Day to make sure we had a bid in place. That dedication lasted throughout the entire home purchase even when she fell sick days later and completely lost her voice during the bidding process! Despite this, she got us a price we were happy with via email, and was pleasant and professional every single time we spoke. I can’t even imagine what more she could have done for us. Marlee gets our highest recommendation.
—Candice and Andrew
Having worked with Marlee before, she was our first choice as we started the process of finding our next home. Always a great listener, Marlee was able to show us properties that helped us think through what was most important. When we were ready, Marlee was able to present our offer and get a challenging deal done in a rapidly changing market. Having been in our new home for a few months now, we couldn’t be happier with the purchase and recommend Marlee without reservation.

Marlee is an outstanding realtor – She helped me navigate my first purchase of a new Condo development – Uptown. Marlee analyzed all the documents with her years of expertise in condo sales. She explained all details and was extremely patient through the whole process. Marlee brings humour and strong market knowledge. Whether buying or selling I would strongly mention Marlee as the realtor to choose!
Greg and I would like to express our appreciation for your efforts in assisting us in the purchase of our home. Your timeliness in responding to our calls and answering all of our questions and concerns was second to none. Your professionalism and expertise was appreciated. You are truly skilled at your craft. We look forward to keeping in touch with you,
—Marlee G. and T. W.
Darryl and I found your patience, ingenuity and spirit a great asset to us. We are now settled in our home and loving every minute of it. We also want to thank-you for your “skills” at finding the right product in such a short time. Sincerely,
—Susan and Daryl E.
Marlee Tecks is a very hardworking and dedicated lady. She did very well for me. When it comes time to move again, I intend to call her.
Marlee went out of her way to assist my husband and I with the purchase of our first home. Without her expertise, which she was so willing to share with us, I dont think that the purchase would have been as easy and hassle free as it was. We are truly impressed with her as a Realtor and will look to her down the road when we are ready to upgrade. Sincerely,
—C. and E. S.
Marlee has been our family Realtor for the past 15 years. She has helped us to buy and sell properties on a yearly basis from Steveston to Downtown Vancouver. She is a wealth of experience and knowledge, a truly very caring professional, someone you can trust. We will continue to use her and recommend her to our Friends and Family when purchasing or selling homes.
